The sign of a good coach is one to get a bunch of misfits to win midway through their first year after starting so shitty because lack of talent that the previous coach left. Egg on ‘stones super stupid negative face. Sad.
Agreed re: Stones's egg face. Pathetic!

Signs of real life and the Toint is soldout, even SRO is selling out.

Will Pete get his revenge? Or, fall on his face? 

Fun fact! - if K-State wins tonight, it's all-time record will be 1,856-1,856.

I am all in on my new guy Pete and am very confident he will smash an inferior OU team proving them wrong for firing him because he lost tons of games and proving me wrong for thinking that he is a small time loser that would only be hired by a small time loser.

Looked like a crap ton of no shows for "sold out" games, and they really blew a great chance and starting pitching performance yesterday.

It was over when they got to our bullpen on Sunday. Probably should have rolled the dice and kept Wicks in since our pen is so unreliable.

OU had scouted the “that Coach doesn’t win baseball games” part of our squad and we didn’t see it coming.  How did they know?

I still don't like the hire, think it was small timey, won't work out long term, etc. But, for a team picked unanimously to finish last in the Big 12, they're probably exceeding expectations (Tied for 6th with 3 series left to play - at Baylor, home vs. WVU, at KU).

the thing is, the Big 12 is pretty crappy at baseball and if we gave a little effort we could be pretty competitive.

It took Brad Hill like 17 seasons to win a Dr. Pepper.

Brad Hill is basically LHC Bill Snyder, easily the best coach in program history (like football, not saying much).  So again, hopefully known loser coach we have now if better than goat Hill.

yeah, there is really no way to know what this guy's winning % would look like in this conference.

Well, we went from hiring a D2 coach (Brad Hill) to a coach who had coached 3 previous P5 schools, so I'd say the University is trending up when it comes to baseball hires.

Interestingly, Hughes has a chance to finish better at K-State in his first year than he did in his first year at OU (28-27 overall, 8-16 in conference - 8th place).

Improvement!

If he gets us to the big 12 tournament, I'll take it for his first year.

I still think he was a poor hire, but, yes, making Big 12 in his first year would be an acceptable season (not great, not terrible - acceptable). If he can talk Brennan and Thompson into staying next year and find some decent bullpen help, he should have a good chance to move up in the standings.
